A 24yr old aspiring Nigerian rapper, Frank Ikechukwu Amobi, was gunned down on Tuesday Dec 27th around 6:30am, while on his way to work, in the US.
The popular local rapper known as Frank Diggy, was killed while waiting for a bus near a bus stop in the White Oak neighborhood of Silver Spring, Montgomery County.
Police say that “Frank Diggy,” was shot in the 11400 block of Stewart Lane early Tuesday morning.
The Silver Spring resident, who was 24, was pronounced dead at the scene. Friends and family say that Amobi was getting into his car and heading to work, as he did every day.
At 6:48 a.m. Tuesday, Montgomery County police responded to the shooting near a Metro bus stop. Amobi was found to have been shot multiple times.
Bullet casings littered the street as police worked to determine whether the shooting was a random act of violence or if Amobi was targeted.
Sentos Bangura, who lives nearby the shooting scene, was confused by the sound of the shooting Tuesday morning.
“I said, ‘Could this be a gunshot sound, because I have not been hearing that since I came here,'” Bangura said. “To be hearing it this morning, it was strange.”
Before his death, Amobi faced charges including drug possession, theft and assault, but had been working hard to turn his life around. RIP, man.
